Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's Office Corrects Tim Johnson

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney knows that Tim Johnson was wrong when he said that studies of vaccinated v. unvaccinated populations disprove an vaccine/autism link, because Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney has been trying to get legislation passed to force the government to actually DO a vaccinated v. unvaccinated study because Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney knows good and well that it will take an act of Congress to get them to do the damn study.

'Cause the NIH does not want to do that study.

CDC started one in 1999 and found a correlation between vaccines and autism that they have been trying to bury ever since.

Dr. Johnson,

Earlier this week on Good Morning America you said that studies of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children showed no difference in autism rates (transcript below). I wanted to call your attention to the fact that no such scientific study has even been done. The only thing that even came close was a phone survey conducted last year by Survey USA and commissioned by Generation Rescue, which showed that vaccinated boys were more than twice as likely to have autism than unvaccinated boys.

There have been studies comparing autism outcomes among children receiving different types of vaccines and different amounts of thimerosal, but not one scientific study of autism outcomes between vaccinated and unvaccinated populations.

My boss, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), has introduced legislation that would require the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct a comprehensive comparative study of vaccinated and unvaccinated populations, which may resolve the controversy about the possible link between autism and mercury or other vaccine components: http://maloney.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1383&Itemid=61.

I just wanted to call your attention to this important information. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you very much for your time,

-Meghan
